Remote Possibilities: An 'Office' party, return of 'Totally Biased'

A few things to watch (or feed your DVR).

Remote Possibilities: An 'Office' party, return of 'Totally Biased'

Compared to next week's finale of  "The Office" (9 p.m., NBC10) -- now scheduled to clock in at one hour, 15 minutes, to maximize commercial time -- this week's episode is merely supersized at an hour.

A lot happens in that hour, though including a terrific sendoff for Darryl (Craig Robinson). And if you're a fan of the cat-crossed romance of  Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela (Angela Kinsey), you won't want to miss a minute. Not even the minute or so involving Clay Aiken.

Meanwhile, the late-night  show "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell" returns to FX at 11 p.m., with Melissa V. Harris-Perry of MSNBC as Bell's guest. The Chris Rock-produced series will go daily this fall, as it moves to FX's spinoff network, FXX. (And, yes, that still looks like a typo. But I suppose we'll get used to it.)

You you may also want to check out:

-- "Community" (8 p.m., NBC10). The  Season 4 (and possibly forever) finale is called "Advanced Introduction to Finality." Sony is urging fans to watch live in hopes of saving it.

-- "The Big Bang Theory" (8 p.m., CBS 3). In which the women on the show get to play Dungeons & Dragons and the universe implodes. OK, maybe not that last part. But then "Big Bang" fans don't generally need their arms twisted to watch.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
